Fallout 4 is a big game. The greatest threat in Fallout 4 is The Institute and its legion of Synths: highly advanced synthetic humans capable of mimicking us perfectly.
Clearly The Institute has been following your character for years, and needs to get more in-depth surveillance. Have you noticed that Dogmeat is immortal? A Diamond City journalist with a nose for the truth, actively campaigning to inform people of the Synth threat.
